TP ICAP, the leading provider of financial market services, is pleased to announce that Philip Price, Executive Director, TP ICAP Group plc, has been appointed to the new National Numeracy Leadership Council.

Philip will join representatives from HM Treasury and senior executives from the UK’s leading businesses in an effort to help improve the nation’s numeracy. The Council will be led by Andy Haldane, CEO of the RSA and former Bank of England Chief Economist.

The Council intends to grow the network of organisations and individuals actively addressing the issue of poor numeracy and elevate the understanding and importance of the issue at a national level. The Council and its member organisations will also help support people to improve and use their numeracy by creating positive attitudes to numbers and maths, supporting financial wellbeing, increasing access to sustainable careers and, ultimately, stimulating productivity across the entire workforce.

Currently, half the working age population in the UK has the numeracy levels of a primary school child, putting the UK significantly behind other developed countries and is estimated to cost the country £25 billion a year.

Philip Price said: “Numeracy matters – for individuals, for families and for society overall. That’s why TP ICAP is proud to have supported National Numeracy since 2018 and we’re excited to join this new Leadership Council. Because engaging people to improve their numeracy skills and build their confidence is a critical part of fostering social mobility.”

TP ICAP is a strategic partner of National Numeracy and supports its work across communities, workplaces and the within the wider culture to help millions of people transform their lives.
